Luis Suárez placed the 3-1of Atlético de Madrid vs. Elche. The Uruguayan returned to convert after a month and added 150 goals since playing in LaLiga Santander.
The duel between Atlético de Madrid and Elche has been special for Luis Suárez. The forward scored 1-0 in the 41st minute to celebrate for the first time since November 7. In addition, the ‘charrúa’ achieved a total of 150 goals since he played in LaLiga de España, according to the statistician Mister Chip.
Not only that, the Uruguayan also added 200 official matches in the First Division championship. The ‘9’ arrived in the 2014-15 season from Liverpool in England to wear the Barcelona shirt. He was with the Catalans for six seasons and this season he joined the ‘Colchoneros’.
Suárez, citing Mister Chip, has joined the group of footballers who needed the fewest games to reach 150 in LaLiga history. If the ‘Pistolero’ needed 200 games, his former partner and friend, Lionel Messi, reached that number of conquests after 203 games. While Cristiano Ronaldo only required 140 commitments.
The Uruguayan’s historic goal came after Kieran Trippier’s attack down the wing. The red-and-white marker sent a cross at the height of the small area. The ‘9’ got between the central Elche to slightly deviate the trajectory of the ball and send it within the networks of the Wanda Metropolitano stadium.
Luis Suárez broke a streak that went beyond the month without scoring with the Atlético de Madrid jersey. The player missed four games between LaLiga and Champions due to the coronavirus. On December 5 he reappeared and did not score. So it was two more games. In the middle of the week he was not considered for the Copa del Rey. Then, the ‘9’ was seen with the networks again on a special day.
